Quilting blocks embody heritage

Finding a treasure for some may mean striking oil, for others gold; but for local quilter Jennifer Fry, treasure comes in the form of quilting blocks made by her great-grandmother, Lucille Klatt.

The quilting blocks were started by Fry’s great-grandmother but were never utilized in a completed quilt.

They were misplaced approximately 23 years ago  during a household consolidation and had been missing ever since, until recently.

In 2017, the quilting blocks were unearthed and Fry inherited the collection.

The blocks are made with a compilation of fabrics Klatt collected and worked on over a long period, the family is unsure of exact time frames.

Fry describes some of the fabric in the blocks as “possibly feed-sacks or flour-sacks.”
